I am probably being silly but I can't seem to find where I change my member title.

I went to "My settings" but there is no option to change it.

It should be under "My Settings"

Click your username at the top right-hand corner.

Select My Settings from the drop down menu.

Scroll down to Member Title

 

Hope this helps.

I think I've seen this problem happen before... But I got stoned, and forgot why it happened

IIRC it had something to do with being a new member with a low post count. Though it does show you as a 'Free Member' now, so maybe this is a different issue. This might be a question for Zen.

Welcome to 'topia, by the way :)

If I recall correctly from before I was Staff. The option does not show up in the members edit options until after someone from staff actually changes the title once. Then from that point on the Member has the option to change themselves. Ferather Please go to your profile to confirm if this is true, please post another screen shot if you can.

@Heirloom can you please also confirm this by checking your profile options too?

No, still no joy. Can you change it to "Reverse Engineer" no quotes.

Then it must have something to do with post count or longevity. Heirloom is yours any different?

Also there is system in place whatever it is, that someone put there for a reason. Maybe a privilege that is earned over time or contributions, maybe VIP. I don't want to see that cheated or abused. So please be forewarned that I will be locking this thread after our mystery is solved to help maintain the integrity of the original parameters of who set the guidelines.

I have another issue, the orange circle "mark as read" to the left of forums names, shows the green loading bar, but marks nothing as read.

go into the forum and click the " mark forum as read", then refresh the page, the orange circle should change grey to "read"

 

Coorsmikey: member titles are not meant to be changed by members, they can only be changed by mods or admins, and yes i think you are correct that once changed the option should show up, at least for VIP.

I think that I've always had the ability to change my title. But since I've always been a dope smoking hillbilly, I haven't seen the need to try to change it.....

Member names have to be changed by admin,

member titles should be able to be changed by

the member(though I KNOW this isn't always so)

after the intro period...
